I haven't really thought of the condition since I watched the Hitchcock movie years ago.  Yesterday I spent the day in ER with my mother as they ruled out a stroke as the cause of her vertigo.  Up until yesterday this condition was completely off my radar, now it seems every third person I talk to has had a bout of it.

Anyway, she seems better today.  They gave her a prescription of meclizine, which seems to be helping.  I was just reading that hearing loss can also be a symptom -- this would make sense as I wished I brought some earplugs with me today as I parent-sat and she was going nuts with the TV volume.

There is an ancient thread on it around here or earlier th3core.   Vertigo is absolutely one of the worst ailments you can endure. But endure you will --mostly because you're too sick to put yourself out of the misery.

I was suffering from dizziness/vertigo symptoms for several months last year and was eventually diagnosed with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).

Hope your mother is on the mend Littleman because vertigo isnít pleasant at all. I was lucky that there was a treatment called the Epley maneuver which sorted me out after 2 or 3 sessions. The BPPV hasnít returned since thank goodness.
